With nearly all donations in, we can now give you a running total for our Swimathon! We will update this total as the remaining donations come in - A bit like when you watch Sport Relief or something like that...
The current totals:
Total Lengths Swam: 536.5
Amazing totals and a great achievement I am sure you'll agree, but these numbers do not do it justice at all! The number of people that turned up and swam, that supported and donated. The number of people that swam even triple their target amounts was astounding! What an #InclusiveSwim!
Super proud of all of us, especially those that braved their swimming costumes and smashed out some amazing lengths - it was great to see everyone working towards the common goal of #5milesin2hours. As you can see we more than managed that... in fact... we hit that target in an hour! Incredible. Bigger targets next time? Maybe a Triathlon?
Before we even started swimming Stuart said to Jane "We're going to smash this", it is exactly this confidence that made us do so well!
In the words of Troy, who swam 12 lengths, "I thought it was quite amazing. It was great fun!"
I think that sums up the day rather well!
Thank you everyone, including Lords Meadow who helped make the event possible.
